I am living in Clinton, NC. I have a 2 year old daughter. I was never married to her father. We are currently going through the child support process and the paternity test is pending. When it comes back that he is the father and he is named on the birth certificate, do I need to file for custody? I am confused as to whether I already have custody since we were not married. I am just worried about him taking her and not giving her back.
